Given the Recent Situation in Egypt, How Does Jenee Lawson Feel About Living in a Democracy?

Democracy is a form of political organization in which all people have equal control over the matters that affect their interests. It is important to live in a democracy because everyone is equal and can share their opinion. We live in a world full of diverse cultures and political views. When people live under dictatorship they are basically being controlled, they have no opinion and they just have to agree with everything that happens. For example Adolf Hitler was a dictator; he led the atrocities against the Jews. Dictatorship is wrong and no one should have to live under it. When you live in a democracy you have so many privileges and when you live under dictatorship you are trapped.

The Importance of Social Media Sites by Jenee Lawson

 Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter are being used to raise awareness and funding for lots of causes by businesses and non-profit organizations. The reason being that a lot of people all over the world have facebook and twitter, so they are able to find people of similar interests. Facebook is a great social website because people are able to express themselves and also meet new people from different places. It is a very fun website but can also be used as a place to spread the word about a social problem in the world like child slavery or poverty in Haiti. It’s wonderful how people can start something so small and it can end up actually saving lives and making the world a better place….Facebook rocks!! 🙂

Why President Obama’s Message isn’t Connecting With The American People? – Jenee’s Idea

Personally I think that President Barack Obama is doing a good job but others seem to think that he isn’t. Everyone needs to realize that President Obama was put into office at the time of the recession. He is doing the best he can do to help everyone but it is going to take a while. The democrats seem more for the people and the republicans seem more for themselves. In my opinion I think that the republicans are more demanding and better at debating. Obama’s message is not connecting with the people because they expect everything to happen quickly and it’s not going to happen like that. I think Barack Obama is a wonderful president and no one can change my mind!!

HIV/AIDS Awareness – Jenee’s Perspective

HIV/AIDS is a very serious issue; this is why people should be aware. It is important to raise awareness about the disease among our community members because it mostly affects African Americans. Most adults are afraid to get tested because they’re scared of the outcome but it’s better to know than not to know and spread it on to others. Also teens need to be careful and stay abstinent until they reach an appropriate age. Personally, I think I can make a difference by talking to teens about abstinence and spread the word of “getting tested”.

Facebook Donated $100 Millions to Newark Public Schools – Jenee’s Reaction

I think that Mark Zuckerberg did a great thing by donating $100 million dollars to Newark Public Schools. Newark Public Schools eliminated 194 positions in 40 job titles effective immediately; this was said by Valerie Merritt, director of communications for Newark Public Schools. The budget called for “unfortunate cuts”. This donation will allow Newark public schools to improve their education system and hopefully rehire the people who were fired. Mark Zuckerburg is really generous by giving such a wonderful donation; this will improve children’s education in Newark.

JFC Alumni Advice for New Kids on Advocacy – Jenee’s Idea

I think the next group of Journey for Change kids should advocate about HIV/AIDS because I think a lot of people do not really focus on the issue. Most people have heard about HIV/AIDS but don’t actually know about it, it is very important. Also it is a broad topic so there are a lot of different aspects to it.
